day three hundred.sixty.four


last day of the year and last post of the year on this blog. i wanted to post some dramatic photo, summing up my life in one shot. instead found my son under a blanket doing who knows what with my phone.

even though this was a one year photo journey i think i will continue it for another year. who knows what 2012 will bring. 2011 was as far up as it was down. i learned that god has a perfect plan for our lives, a plan that feels like a roller coaster, but on that is perfect for me and my family. happy new year to you all.

one of our gifts from auntie ange (far left) was tickets to see disney on ice in boston. it was a family adventure to say the least. the boy loved riding the train as much as seeing mickey on ice.

penciling you in

let me pencil you in. for someone who was just a breath ago struggling to climb out of his crib i am amazed at his coloring skills. he says scribbling is not allowed.

i decided to make my students work for their christmas fun by forcing them to unwrap hershey kisses with gloves on. this relay race was male versus female. males won. after such torture we enjoyed a mornign of junkfood, movie watching, gift giving, and a game of capture the flag.

day three hundred.forty

it was a rough day today. i wish i was home alone. this song has too much meaning for us on this day.

I promised you the world again
Everything within my hands
All the riches one could dream
They will come from me

I hoped that you could understand
That this is not what I had planned
Please don’t worry now
It will turn around

Cause I need more time
Just a few more months and we’ll be fine
So say what’s on your mind
Cause I can’t figure out just what’s inside

I hoped that you could understand
That this is not what I had planned
Please don’t worry now
It will turn around

We’re off to new lands
So hold on to my hands
It’s gonna be alright
It’s a whole lot brighter
So stand by the fire
It’s gonna be alright
Yeah, the road gets harder
But it’s not much farther
It’s gonna be alright
You know that it ain’t easy
Please believe me
It’s gonna be alright
